Allied Armies Have Left Little of Value Outside the Palace. Copyright, 1900, by Associated Fress.l Shanghai, Sept. 11. The Taku steamer which has arrived here brings reports of the latest events In Fekin. These advices are to the effect that the greatest har mony prevails among the officers of the allies,- who treat each other with extreme courtesy and that the soldiers are living as though members of one army. Late arrivals say that if any clash occurs during the occupation of Pekin It will be brought on by the diplomats la Europe and not by the soldiers in the field. The inarch through the palace Was a felstoric event. Every army was repre sented. The Russians led and the troops of other nationalities followed in the or der previously reported by cable. Each regiment of Americans who participa ted In the relief of Pekin was represent ed by about 150 men. General Chaffee, General Barry and other officers leading. A Russian band and the Sikhs' bagpipes played national airs while the troops filed through the ground and buildings. There were many eunuchs attached to the palace remaining and they stood by looking as though they were attending a funeral. They were evidently deeply humiliated. After the procession, which began to move at S o'clock in the morning and was an hour and a half in passing through the grounds, a party of civilians including the legation ladies and some prominent missionaries were admitted. Tea. was served to them, and the palace was Inspected. The most remarkable features of the buildings are said to be the gilded exterior staircases, carved from single stones with dragons, lions and other ornaments. The empress' bed Is trimmed with solid gold. After the inspection the palace gates were again . closed and no one was permitted to en ter the grounds. The troops arriving here are forwarded to Pekin as fast as they land. The min isters remain In Pekin. The city has been entirely looted, except the palace, and auction sales of loot, in which valu able silks, furs, and bronaes are the prin cipal articles, are held daily. The chief bidders at these sales are army officers. The newspaper correspondents had a controversy with the officers, who at first proposed that no correspondent should be admitted to the palace with the procession, but the press representa tives were finally allowed to accompany the troops. The Chinese forts at Pel Tsang near Taku, are still undisturbed. The British made a reconnaissance in that vicinity but the British commander says he will remain passive unless he is attacked, when he must fight In order to preserve his self-respect. The Russians are ex pected to attack soon, but they lack sufficient artillery for their purpose. A Russian scouting party was blown up by a mine near the fort and several of Its members were killed. The commanders of the Chinese forts at Che-Foo ore greatly disturbed by re ports that the Germans propose taking the forts, and they are threatening to defend them to the end. The heavily manned Krupps In the foreign settle ment will be destroyed if a fight occurs. The United States battleship Oregon ar rived at Woo-Sung today. She steamed at good speed throughout the trip. Her officers say she is in perfect condition for the present, though the repairs made were of a temporary character. ARRIVE AT MANILA. Eight Troops of the First Cavalry Reach Manila. Washington, Sept. 11. The navy de partment has been informed of the ar rival of the battleship Oregon at Woo Sung. The department was also ad vised of the arrival at Shanghai from Che Foo of the gunboat Nashville. Woo Sung is the port of Shanghai, and here the Oregon will remain, as her draft will not permit of her going to Shanghai. The war department has been In formed of the arrival of the transport Garonne at Manila on the 7th Inst., with eight troops of the First cavalry aboard. There troops were originally Intended for service in China, and were among the first to be diverted to the Philippines In accordance with the de partment's decision to send no more troops to Taku. HER MINE RESTORED. Valuable Property Taken by Mexicans .Given Back to Frisco Woman. Syracuse, N. T., Sept. 11. Two prom inent lawyers of the City of Mexico, Luis De La Barra and Francisco Oreilly, are here for the purpose of conferring with Mrs. Mary D. Grace regarding her silver mines in the state of Durango, Mexico. They have come to arrange a final settlement with Mrs. Grace. The prop erty is valued by mining experts at anywhere Irom 11,000,000 to J12.000 000. Mrs. Grace is the principal of the Tompkins school here, and has been supporting herself while seeking to re cover the mines in which she became in terested in 1SS2, at which time she lived In San Francisco. The mines are now being worked and the output of ore has been contracted for by Guggenheimer Bros., of New York. They are bankers who deal in silver. William J. Grace, eldest son of Mrs. Grace, is In charge of the mines. He was superintendent when the property was taken from Mrs. Grace by the Mex icans, who have held it for the past seven years. The mines are situated near the village of Nombre De Dlos. about 500 miles north of the City of Mexico. Before Mrs. Grace was dis possessed by Spanish claimants under the order of a minor court, a smelter and complete outfit of mining ma chinery worth nearly a million dollars had been Installed. The mines them selves earned this outlay. The prop erty comes back to Mrs. Grace stripped of most of its valuable machinery, liven the mules which drew the ore cans were taken away. The pumps were smashed, the smelter stroyea and everything that could be ftone to wreck the property was done by i CO. m 75 only KidJ a Eaoh .25c and 29c ea. .20c to 35c pr. the Mexicans when they found that they could not longer hang on to the prop erty. A KANSAS SIZZARD. The Temperature Averaged 10 De grees Above Normal Last Week. The following is the report of the cli mate and crop service of the department of agriculture for th Kansas section for the week ending September 8. GENERAL CONDITIONS. A very warm week, the temperature averaging about 10 degrees above the nor mal. Good showers occurred In the ex treme northwestern counties. In Morton, Barber, Cowley, Chautauqua and Wood son, with light showers in a few others, while no rain fell tn the larger part of the state. EASTERN DIVISION. Corn Is maturing rapidly in Johnson and Marshall; it ia drying too rapidly in Ne maha, and consequently Is shriveling; it has dried in Jackson, and has been hurt bv drought in Allen. The cutting of the late corn has begun In Shawnee. Apples are poor in Leavenworth, and have nearly all fallen In Woodson. Pastures are hold ing well in Marshall and Jackson, but are getting quite dry in Nemaha, Leaven worth, Shawnee and Neosho, have dried in Elk, and are burning up In Greenwood. Wheat-sowing has begun in Cherokee and Johnson. The fourth crop of alfalfa is being cut in Coffey. Haying still continues in a few counties. MIDDLE DIVISION. The corn crop is rapidly passing out of danper from frost; it is of better quality in Harper than that of 1899: it ia ripening rapidlv in Washington, ha3 dried up in Reno, while in Kingman cutting Is about finished. While apples have improved some in Cowley, the crop In general has been rapidly diminished by falling from the trees. Wheat-sowing has commenced in Dickinson, Republic and Washington, some has been sown in Harvey, but many of the farmers are waiting for rain first; the ground is ready for seeding In Bar ton and Cowley. Psstures are short and stock water low. The third crop of al falfa is nearlv ready to cut In Republic. The cane and Kaffir harvest is In progress in Barber. WESTERN DIVISION. Corn is being gathered In Ness; much of it will be chaffy in Decatur, still the county will have two-thirds of a crop: in some parts of Sherman the corn is a good crop, in other parts there is no corn. The ground is too dry to plow except in the extreme northern counties. Cattle are do ing well in Sherman but in Morton they are not improving on the short, dry grass as in early August. Cane-cutting is in progress in Thomas. Alfalfa has been a good crop in Decatur, and prairie hay quite a good crop. NEAR THE BORDER. Hoyt's Day and a Night Not So Pleasing as His Other Plays. Charles H. Hoyt, writer of farces "poor Charlie Hoyt," as he is feelingly referred to since he was adjudged of un sound mind and placed under the car- of brain specialists, has been accused, in the writing of his latest success, "A Day and a Night," to have attempted to see just how near he could approach the brink of Impropriety on the stage with out offending refined taste. That he clung to the brink tenaciously, all those who have seen the farce can vouch, and there is good ground for argument on the question of his having overstepped the dividing line at times. "A Stranger in New York," the farce that immediate ly preceded "A Day and a Night" is de cidedly -'racy," but the latter goes it one better, and had Mr. Hoyt retained his mental faculties it is impossible to say what might have been the result. "A Dog in the Manger" proved a hopeless failure, the first at the door of the play wright.because the mind that construct ed it was able only to supply the gross material without the curtain of wit and cleverness that characterized its earlier efforts. "A Day and a Night" is farcical story of the "making of a sport," and as this fact is developed early in the piece, what follows does not surprise an audience. A father plots with a friend to corrupt the supposed morals of his son with the view of making him a "man of the world," and as Mr. Hoyt's shafts are leveled at hypocrisy it develops that the son has "made himself" behind the screen of the church. The church and marriage relations have been continuous recipients of the playwright's satire for several years, and it Is only reasonable that he selected the church as the one thing to aptly illustrate his ideas The company seen in the farce at the Crawford theater last night is not equal to the original company here with It in March, 1S99. The loss of Otis Harlan as the sanctimonious son and "Big Bill" Devere as the Commodore Is pronounced, although Mr. Will H. Hatter and Mr. Tom Martin make the parts satisfactory. The female portion of the original com pany was out of the ordinary, combining pretty faces with unusual vaudeville talent, and in this respect the present company is sadly inferior. Not one of the six young ladies now engaged can lay even a modest claim to beauty. Miss Cora Isham deserves particular mention among the number tot her songs. She has a pleasing and well trained soprano voice, and was recalled several times. She has the place filled by Miss Florence Relda,who found much favor with a Topeka audience, in the or iginal company. The audience that saw the farce last night was large enough to fill the the ater. BIG DEALS IN APPLES. Farmer Buys Fruit of 3 4-Acre Farm Containing 30,000 Bushel, .Wolcott. N. T., Sept 1L Dr. Mack Weger,. a leading Butler farmer, has bought the apples in the thirty-four acre Fernando Merrill orchard on the out skirts of this village. The price paid was $1,000 on the tree. Experts esti mate the number of bushels of apples as 30.000. The executors of the Draper estate also have sold their half of the apples in the Draper and Thacker or chard for $600. The orchard contains twenty acres, and the total yield Is es timated at 22,000 bushels. Charged With Stealing Beer. Two colored men are In the clutches of the city court. One for stealing beer and the other Tor disturbing religious services. Ewing Page became obstreper ous and disturbed the quiet of the meet ing at the St. Marks A. M. E. church and he must now stand trial for the of fense. W. Arnold is charged with hav ing stolen a case of beer .from a Rock Island freight cac APPEALSfOR AID, Governor Stanley Asks Eansans to Contribute For the Relief of the Galveston Sufferers, KANSAS ACTS FIRST. Responds Immediately to Goyer nor Say res' Appeal. Governor Forwards 500 Storm TIctims Today. to Kansas Is the first state to respond to the apeal for aid for the Galveston suf ferers, issued by Governor Sayrea last night Governor Stanley today issued the fol lowing proclamation: "To the People of Kansas: On Sun day, the 9th inst., the city of Galveston was visited by one of the most dis astrous tempests ever known. That beautiful city is now in ruins. The liv ing are busy burying the dead. Thou sands of people are homeless. The need for aid is immediate. Kansas has never turned a deaf ear to the cry of distress, nor withheld the hand of bounty from the destitute. "I appeal to the generous spirit of our people to respond to the cry of Gal veston in her hour of suffering. I re quest that the mayors of the different cities and towns of the state at once take such steps as to them may seem best to procure from their communities donations of money, and that a collec tion be taken in all of the churches of the state on Sunday, the 16th, and that such donations be sent at once to the governor of Texas or the mayor of Gal veston. "I confidently expect a generous re sponse to this appeal for help for this stricken community. "W. E. STANLEY, Governor. "Attest: Secretary of State." The governor said today: "I have no doubt that the generous people of Kan sas will respond at once to this request for aid for the Galveston sufferers. The storm and its result are certainly the worst ever recorded in the history, of our country, and the people of the United States, Kansas among them, will at once realize the importance of prompt action to prevent, so far as possible, ad ditional suffering for the unfortunate victims." There remains In the India famine re lief fund an unexpended balance of $500 which the governor was today author ized by the state relief committee to send immediately to Galveston. This money is in the hands of F. D, Coburn, secretary of the committee. The members of the committee are as follows: John E. Frost, F. O. Popenoe, William Green, W. A. L. Thompson. F. D. Coburn, Frank R. Millspaugh, John R. Mulvane, Mayor C. J. Drew, and J. K. Hudson.

London, Sept '1L The remarkable run of the Hamburg-American line steamship Deutschland is exciting un usual interest in England, and there is much complaint because British vessels are thus distanced in the speed compe tition. The Daily Chronicle points out the danger that in time of war British trade would be at the mercy of such swift commerce destroyers, and says that the government and nation must look to it. The Cunard line manager when Inter viewed yesterday paid: "There is no doubt that Germany is alive to the value of euch fast vessels in the event of war, and the benevolent attitude of the German government has been largely instrumental in stimulating their production. It ia all a question of cost. Experience has proved that there is no finality in speed development. The Cunard line haa its eyes fully open to the situation." SAW A PLOT TO MURDER. Americans on a Steamer Fear Russians and Ban Boat to Shore. Seattle, Wash., Sept. 11. The steamer Samoa left Nome for the Siberian coast early in August with men and material for the operation of a concession in Russian territory secured by London capitalists. The expedition was in charge of George D. Roberts, and he had associated with him a Russian civil en gineer named Dadounedvltch. The force included thirty Russians, who had been engaged as laborers, and six Ameri cana -- Shortly after the vessel put to sea the thirty laborers began to act in a man ner that aroused the suspicion of the Americans, and the uneasiness was aug mented by the alleged discovery that the Russians, with the exception of the civil engineer, were all Cossack soldiers. Roberts put a watch on them, and on learning what he believed to be a plot to seize the vessel and maroon or mur der the Americans, he decided upon a plan of action. One night when the Russians were asleep the boat was turned about and headed for Nome. Upon the arrival of the vessel Roberts Informed the local military forces of the ajfair, and a squad of soldiers was at once sent out to the boat and placed in charge of the Russians. The affair will be thoroughly sifted. The progressive nations of the world are the great food consuming nations. Good food well digested gives strength.

New York, Sept.ll. Few persons know what a square meal is, according to Pro fessor Atwater, the Connecticut scien tist, who makes a specialty of analyzing food and determining its values. He has just concluded, a series of remarkable experiments and the result is that be finds very few know what to eat. It is common, for instance, to Imagine that a sirloin steak is one of the most nutritious of meats. Professor Atwater has found that salt fat pork, for in stance, is more than twice as rich in nutriment and in fuel value. By fuel is meant the property which furnishes heat and energy to the body. The World has the story of Atwater's discoveries, and according to the eminent experimentalist there is also a common misapprehension concerning eggs. Most people eat eggs, even with an effort, de luding themselves by the thought that they are nourishing. Now eggs are one of the least nutritive of foods. Dried white beans are more than eight times as nutritious as eggs. Oysters are one of the poorest of our foods in nutrient value, while fish are almost equally val ueless as muscle producers. Professor Atwater announces that the popular idea that fish are rich in phos phorus and are consequently excellent as a brain food is a mistake. There are a score of common food products more valuable as brain food than fish. The foods which are richest in nutrients and fuel will also be a surprise to most peo ple. Among meats fat salt pork ia in reality the most valuable food. None of the meats or fishes compares, however, with beans, rice or potatoes. Sugar is found to be very valuable as a nutrient. Professor Atwater commends candy, es pecially for children, as one of the most nutritious of foods. The cereals far outrank all other foods for both nutrient and fuel values. Even in the analysis the popular idea is con tradicted and we find oatmeal ranking far below wheat flour. The most valu able of all our food products in point of nutrient and fuel value is cornmeal. COL LITTLE SPEAKS. Makes an Address on Philippine Question at Smith Center. Smith Center, Sept. 11. The Smith county fusion campaign was opened here by Col. E. C. Little, who apoke for two hours to a crowd which filled the opera house to overflowing. The weath er was very disagreeable and the crowd sweltered in the heat but listened at tentively. Colonel Little took strong ground against imperialism and the McKInley policy of expansion. It was his first political speech this year, and settled all doubt as to his position on the Phil ippine question. He reviewed at length the history of the controversy over the islands. He held that if the same recognition and consideration had been given Aguinal.o and his government that was given the Sultan of Sulu there would have been no war, no loss of ilfe, no vast expen diture of money and no troublesome colonial difficulties. His speech was well received and liberally applauded. HIBERNIANS IN SESSION. Will Make a Radical Change in the Ritual Philadelphia, Sept. 11. The national office and directors of the Ancient Or der of Hibernians, who have been in ses sion in this city for the past three days, have adopted a resolution of sympathy for the Texas hurricane sufferers, a copy of which was sent to the mayor of Galveston. The consideration of ritualis tic work took up a part of the session, and an agreement was reached by which a radical change in the ritual will be made. In view of the expected publica tion by December 1 of an official organ, it was decided to publish therein the list of newly elected state, county and divis ion officers. Means were devised for the spread of the society in a number of the southern and western states, and in teresting reports were received as to the growth throughout the country of the study of Irish history and of the Irish language. The officers and directors also discussed several matters of grave im portance with a view of submitting recommendations thereon to the conven tion to be, held in 1902. IS ORDERED HOME.
